D.R. Trip 2010 - Tuesday

Today (Tuesday) was all work... All day... and it was hot!!!

We started off this morning moving rebar from one side of the roof to the other. (Only to find out later in the day that it was in the way... which we had to work around).

We started an assembly line to move the rebar... which was extremely humorous to the Dominicans and Haitians who were helping us.

Working with the rebar is extremely dirty. Kathryn seems to find most of the dirt and here is showing off her hands.

Bailey and Jackie didn't get AS dirty... but it's still dirty work.

Some of the rebar had to be cut to a certain length. Nico and Kyle got a lesson in how to use the giant rebar cutter.

We are beginning to move the rebar grid across the floor. What you see in the background has already been gridded and tied and is ready for a second layer of grid. Here, we were about done laying for the day and we're about halfway across.

With the work day done, we headed across the road to pick up our stuff. We've been storing our bags and possessions in these houses which belong to G.O. Ministries.

Tonight, we are going to the Supermarket... it will be fun night of buying stuff to bring back... Vanilla... Coffee... Yumm!!!!

More pictures tomorrow... if the Internet holds out.
